    Right now, I'm losing my mind

    because it's like if it's not one thing, it's another. Yesterday I had to hear my mom talk about sex and how I need to get back in school. Although I really don't understand why she talked about sex when I know all about it, I still listened to support her. I mean I'm 20 not 12...

    I came out as bi to one of my best friends,

    and she has been very supportive and it felt really good to let her in. Now, I'm feeling guilty about not telling my best friend. We live a few hours apart, and sometimes we really feel the distance more than others. Right now we are missing each other so much and I feel...

    maybe it's not the best place to ask this,

    but I'll take anything positive or truthful. I had always been a gentleman putting morality speaking hope and inspiring others no matter the situation I always stayed calm and ready, I would welcome hardships at one point, because I knew that although I might not handle it good...

    I need help making a choice.

    Class A is a lot of work, but most of the work will be done during class time so it shouldn't take up much of my free time. (No exams, no studying, just writing stuff) It is also taught by a professor with bad ratings who is supposed to be an unnecessarily tough grader. I could...

    My friends think this guy likes me cause he

    always looks at me, comes up to talk to me and only me, and is constantly touching me. Thing is, he has told me who he likes. So, I'm kinda confused. I'm pretty sure he only sees me as a really good friend. What do you think?

    They act like their your friend over a text message and when you get to school they want nothing to do with you. They play with your emotions. They are bad examples. I have truly never met anyone like these people. I moved to the school two years ago. They don't let you be you...
